Dinosaur on Saturday 20th October 2018
Following her appearance earlier in the day conducting her commission for NYJO, BBC New Generation artist 2015-2017 trumpeter Laura Jurd presents her groundbreaking band Dinosaur, with Elliot Galvin on keys; Conor Chaplin on Bass and Corrie Dick on drums. 2018 has seen the band back in action with some immensely colourful, new music – full of imagination and surprise. Their highly anticipated second album ‘Wonder Trail’ (released May 2018 on Edition Records) sees the band further their exploration into the world of ‘synth-pop meets jazz band’ as they present a journey of mesmerising new compositions. Expect folk-infused grooves and glistening melodies – all tied together by a love for extemporisation and improvisation.
Receiving a rare 5-star review in the Guardian for their 2016 debut album, ‘Together, As One’, the band have toured extensively in Europe and beyond at some of the world’s most prestigious festivals including North Sea Jazz, Montreal Jazz Festival and Molde International Jazz Festival. In addition, they have collaborated with some of the UK’s most celebrated ensembles including the BBC Concert Orchestra, Northern Sinfonia and the Ligeti Quartet
